After their overlooked 1973 release LADIES INVITED failed to create the same spark as their previous recordings, the J. Geils Band made sure their next release, 1974's NIGHTMARES AND OTHER TALES FROM THE VINYL JUNGLE, was a killer. They sound like a band possessed throughout.
This is an album full of inspired performances and solid songwriting. Individual standouts include the surprising reggae tinge of "Give it to Me," and the rocker and concert favorite "Detroit Breakdown," as well as the hit "Musta Got Lost." The J. Geils Band was back in business.
